* AccidentalInnuendo: For some reason, a guy just can't seem to go on a [[HaveAGayOldTime boner]] themed crime spree without people giggling about it decades later.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Considering I'm... [[Film/TheDarkKnight ahead of the curve]], any and ''ALL'' interpretations are equally likely, and not even mutually exclusive!
** Was I ''really'' lying to ComicBook/{{Harley|Quinn}} about my past back when we first met, or was I just telling her the story I remembered at that particular time? [[ComicBook/TheKillingJoke Like I've told you,]] [[MultipleChoicePast I always remember it differently.]]
* ArchivePanic: Given I've been at it about as long as Bat Brain (74 years, and no grey hair to show for it) I've amassed quite a few appearances in and out of the funny books.
* AwardSnub: Sure, my [[Creator/MarkHamill voice]] [[Creator/HeathLedger pals]] and I have gotten quite a few awards through the years, but there are times when I have gotten a bit more Award Snubs too. One of them was the 2012 Joystick Award for one of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlOnqRginfM the Top Gaming Moments]]: [[spoiler:my DownerEnding]] in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity''. Unfortunately, even this [[spoiler:TearJerker ending]] lost to "[[http://www.digitalspy.com/gaming/news/a433646/skyrim-voted-game-of-the-year-at-2012-golden-joystick-awards.html The Throat of the World]]" in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''! DudeWheresMyRespect Whoever snubbed me of my best moment has ''surely'' [[Series/ILoveLucy got some 'splainin' to do]]!
* CantUnHearIt: Regardless of which version of me you think is best, odds are that Creator/MarkHamill's interpretation is the one you'll hear in your head when reading my lines.
** Unless my Creator/HeathLedger voice put a smile on your face.
* CompleteMonster: I will concede that [[{{Understatement}} I'm not very nice]]. See my long list of misdeeds on any of these pages:
** Monster/DCAndVertigo
** Monster/FanWorks
** Monster/{{Film}}
** Monster/VideoGamesAndVisualNovels
** Monster/DCAnimation
* CrazyAwesome: Admit it, laughing fishes were an awesome idea. Pity it didn't work.
* CreepyAwesome: I'm quite possibly the most terrifying person in the DCUniverse. And you ''love me'' for it.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: Line? ''LINE?!'' '''BAH-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!'''
* DracoInLeatherPants: Well, whaddaya know? [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys I'm a hit with the ladies!]]
** [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Yes, fellas, I see you too]]. Now take them [[YaoiGenre creepy pictures]] off [[TheInternetIsForPorn the Interwebs]], ''pronto''.
* DudeNotFunny: What do you mean, not funny? Have you no sense of humor?
* EnsembleDarkhorse: [[{{Fanon}} Oh, you like me!]] [[DracoInLeatherPants You]] ''[[DracoInLeatherPants really]]'' [[DracoInLeatherPants like me!]] I'd like to thank the Academy, my agent... oh, and [[AMillionIsAStatistic all the little people]] I crushed to make this dream come true! ''HA''HAHEEHAHOOHOOHOOHAHA!
** Heck, even your fandom was enough to nominate and win me the 2011 Spike Video Game Award for "[[http://www.joystiq.com/2011/12/10/here-are-the-winners-of-the-2011-spike-video-game-awards/ Character of the Year]]" right in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJX0NBg77Vg this video]], and my voice pal Creator/MarkHamill won the [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17410379 2012 BAFTA Award for "Best Performer"]] for ''Batman: Arkham City''! Are we swell, or what?
* EvilIsCool: Of course I am! [[LaughablyEvil I'm a riot]], [[NightmareFuel I'm terrifying]], [[MagnificentBastard I'm smart]], what's not to like?
* FandomRivalry: Apparently, some of you people are beating each other to death over whether Creator/MarkHamill or Creator/HeathLedger is the better me. Get over it! Don't you know [[ChaoticEvil what I am]]? Either of them is perfectly fine and dandy as a valid me!
* FashionVictimVillain: Of course, there are some times when some of my costumes seem to be laughable. In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' incarnation of ''ComicBook/EmperorJoker'', for example, my [[http://thebatmanuniverse.net/image/TV/News/01-Batman-The%20Brave%20and%20the%20Bold/Season%202/018-Emperor%20Joker/BTBTB-Emperor%20Joker%20Screenshot%2005.jpg spandexed Emperor Jester costume]] looks nothing at all like [[http://ifanboy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Emperor-Joker-1-2000.jpg the royal one I wore]] in the ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' original comic book! In fact, it felt so laughable, that the biggest flaw in my costume is the WhoopeeCushion in my crown, which looks almost like... you know... [[UnfortunateCharacterDesign let's just say...]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar a condom]]. Whoever designed my costume like this in the show's episode creation department deserves to realize the biggest ''[[HaveAGayOldTime boner]]'' (i.e., mistake) they'll never forget!
* FoeYay: Of the century, folks. [[http://community.livejournal.com/joker_in_ink/42633.html Batsy darling and I were meant to be together like this, two peas in a pod!]] Of course he's in denial, but perhaps he's simply unaware he '''has''' feelings, since someone has yet to enlighten him of the concept of Foe Yay on his trope page.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Oh, aren't they all? Though reading about those times when others have tried to steal ''my'' idea of copyrighting a lifeform of my own design had me giggle. If someone as clever and handsome as me couldn't pull it off, what makes them think they can? Wait, what do you mean, '''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamond_v._Chakrabarty they]]''' '''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flavr_Savr did?!]]'''
* HoYay: I did have that fling with one of my mooks in "The Devil's Advocate" now, didn't I... And he's lucky just his legs got broken.
* MagnificentBastard: You're too kind!
** LoveToHate
* MemeticMutation: My [[http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b318/calamityx1/1196633252560.jpg "Joker Face"]] from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' has turned into a forum ImageMacro for many a ViolationOfCommonSense or firm grasps of the IdiotBall.
** [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries "You killed Captain Clown. YOU KILLED CAPTAIN CLOWN! You're going to fry like a grilled cheese sandwich!]]
** There's also [[FountainOfMemes nearly everything that spewed out of my mouth]] when Creator/HeathLedger [[Film/TheDarkKnight became me]].
* MemeticMolester: I'm this because of some fans' views on what happened in ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'', despite Creator/AlanMoore [[WordOfGod saying]] I did not touch Jimmy Gordon or his daughter in ''[[RapeAsDrama that]]'' way. Given ol' Beardie's ''other'' work, kinda hard to believe him. On the other hand, [[{{ComicBook/Joker}} in my self-titled graphic novel]], there was Jonny Jonny's ex-wife...
* MisaimedFandom: Ledgie's me was the page image for a time.
* MoralEventHorizon: [[ComicBook/TheKillingJoke Crippling Jimmy's daughter?]] [[ComicBook/ADeathInTheFamily Bashing in Robin's brains with a crowbar?]] [[ComicBook/BatmanNoMansLand Blowing Sarah Essen's head off?]] Something ''else'' I've missed? I've performed so many atrocities that it's hard to say ''when'' I completely damned myself. And you [[EvilIsCool love me for it]]!
** Oh, wait, everyone! I just remembered! [[DealWithTheDevil I sold my soul]] to that Neron guy, that's when! Damn great cigars I got!
** Many fans haven't forgiven me [[Film/{{Batman}} for shooting Bob]]. He ''was'' my number one guy, you know.
* NeverLiveItDown: If that stooge from WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall is any indication, it's been over fifty years and people are ''still'' laughing at my boner. Honestly! Can't a man make just one mistake?
* TheScrappy:
** Apparently, nobody liked my new look from the second season of [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries the cartoons]]. Oh come on, it can't be that...JUMPING JIMINY CHRISTMAS!! WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO ME?! They sucked the color out! My eyes look like some alien's possessed me! KILL IT! KILL IT! *''BANG! BANG!''*
*** Thankfully, they did a better job with the [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague next series']] rendition of me.
** My cartoon selves seem to be prone to this; the [[WesternAnimation/TheBatman dread-locked kung-fu-fighting version of me]] really got a lot of flack. Wearing that torn-up purple straitjacket, and then my sweet jacket [[DoesNotLikeShoes without shoes]] didn't help.
* WTHCastingAgency: Who thought that casting [[Creator/HeathLedger that gay cowboy]] as me was a good idea in the first place? In hindsight though, it worked very well.
** And admit it, if you heard [[Creator/MarkHamill Luke Skywalker]] [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was playing me over]] Creator/TimCurry back when ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' first aired you might not have been very happy at first. But again, this worked out ''very'' well too.
** And then there was the [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice time]] [[Creator/BrentSpiner Data]] was cast as yours truly. This one was a teensy bit more [[LoveItOrHateIt contentious]], eh?
